|ReaderTheme - Solomon Luke Harm|
A theme for a character that I came up with. I used SynthFont with no plugins or VSTs so there are no effects and the volume is relatively low. However, this is still one of my favorite musical creations.

|Fetal Discoveries - Trills|
Trills returns to Archaic Horizon with his latest work, "Fetal Discoveries". This time, Jonathan Jindra offers thematic imagery rendered through his energetic and unmistakable style. Fluorescent sonics create alluring and vivid impressions. Guided by iridescent synths swirling about an incandescing playground of beats, we are induced into the sonic narrative that is "Fetal Discoveries". Narrated by harmonious melodies and the sounds of psychedelic experimentation, this album is rich with a perso...

|Finding Gaia - Of A Star|
Shying away from the cold, automated complexities of everyday life, Of a Star's album "Finding Gaia" calls us to a simpler state of mind, and reinforces a long-lost spiritual connection with the earth. "Finding Gaia" plays off some of our purest emotions and allows us to step back to see the larger picture of where we stand as human beings on this earth. John Glaunert, the man behind the moniker, recorded nearly the entire album organically, including percussion, vocals, guitar, synth, keys, fie...

|A Pictorial History of the Expansion of the Lansing, MI Metroploitan Area using "SYMAP" time-lapse - Allan H Schmidt|
This may be the earliest attempt to use automated cartography to display dynamic spatial information. The movie portrays the urban expansion of Lansing, MI where Schmidt was working at the Michigan State University Urban Regional Research Institute. Data for every property from 1850 to 1965 was coded by square mile section of the Public Land Survey System. Tto produce the SYMAP output, a thematic attribute was generated of the cumulative percent of land developed during each five year period...

|Solution of second-order linear system by matched asymptotic expansions - Ardema, M. D|
Matched asymptotic expansions (MAE) are used to obtain a first order approximation to the solution of a singularly perturbed second order system. A special case is considered in which the uniform asymptotic solution obtained by MAE is shown to converge to the exact solution. Ways in which the method can be used to sole higher-order linear systems, including those which are not singularly perturbed, are also discussed.

We describe decentralized reconfigurable implementation of a conference management system based on the low-level Internet Protocol (IP) multicasting protocol. IP multicasting allows low-cost, world-wide, two-way transmission of data between large numbers of conferencing participants through the Multicasting Backbone (MBone). Each conference is structured as a software bus -- a messaging system that provides a run-time interconnection model that acts as a separate agent (i.e., the bus) for routin...

|A study of general aviation community noise impact and annoyance - Mabry, J. E|
The method involved the selection of three airports which were dominated by aircraft weighing 12,500 lbs or under and which were also undergoing a change relative to utilization. Also, there was interest in airports with different utilization levels so that effect of number of operations could be considered. In addition, there was a requirement to select airports with communities in the surrounding areas which were exposed to aircraft operations noise...

|Experimental Investigation of Plume-Induced Flow Separation on the National Launch System 1 1/2-Stage Launch Vehicle - Springer, A|
An experimental investigation of plume-induced flow separation on the National Launch System (NLS) 1 1/2-stage launch vehicle was done. This investigation resulted from concerns raised about the flow separation that was encountered on the Saturn 5. A large similarity exists between configurations and nominal trajectories. The study involved the use of solid plume simulators to simulate the base pressure encountered by the vehicle due to engine exhaust plumes at predetermined critical Mach number...

|ERIC ED319066: Working Topics for Students' Papers. - ERIC|
Students enrolled in composition classes may provide the answer to the dilemma of coming up with a writing topic: work--the "four letter word." Most, if not all, students have already become part of the labor force. The theme of "work" is naturally successful because it centers around a topic students know well, something that is within their capacity and interest to explore. Not only is there much to write about using the theme of work in the composition class, there is much to read as a way to...

|Buckling and Failure of Compression-loaded Composite Cylindrical Shells with Reinforced Cutouts - Hilburger, Mark W.|
Results from a numerical and experimental study that illustrate the effects of selected cutout reinforcement configurations on the buckling and failure response of compression-loaded composite cylindrical shells with a cutout are presented. The effects of reinforcement size, thickness, and orthotropy on the overall response of compression-loaded shells are described. In general, reinforcement around a cutout in a compression-loaded shell can retard or eliminate the local buckling response and ma...

A protection and detection surface (PADS) concept was studied for application to composite primary aircraft structures. A Kevlar-epoxy woven face sheet with a Rohacell foam core was found to be the most effective PADS configuration among the configurations evaluated. The weight of the PADS configuration was estimated to be approximately 17 pct of the structural weight. The PADS configuration was bonded to graphite-epoxy base laminates, and up to a 70 pct improvement in compression-after-impact f...

|Analysis of Extensive Cross-Flow Separation using Higher-Order RANS Closure Models - Morison, J. H.|
The turbulent flow fields associated with the incompressible flow over a 6:1 prolate spheroid at high angle of attack, and the supersonic flow over an ogive cylinder are studied. Both these flows are characterized by large separation and vortical flow regions and therefore provide a challenging database for comparison of turbulent closure models. Of interest is the ability to predict the effects of separation and associated vortical motion common to both flows...

Hair cells in the bullfrog vestibular otolith organs regenerate following aminoglycoside ototoxicity. Hair cells in these organs are differentially sensitive to gentamicin, with saccular hair cells and hair cells in the utricular striola being damaged at lower gentamicin concentrations than hair cells in the utricular extrastriola. Regenerating hair cells in these organs have short hair bundles and can be classified into a number of phenotypes using the same morphological criteria used to identi...

|Peripheral innervation patterns of vestibular nerve afferents in the bullfrog utriculus - Baird, Richard A.|
Vestibular nerve afferents innervating the bullfrog utriculus differ in their response dynamics and sensitivity to natural stimulation. They also supply hair cells that differ markedly in hair bundle morphology. To examine the peripheral innervation patterns of individual utricular afferents more closely, afferent fibers were labeled by the extracellular injection of horseradish peroxidase (HRP) into the vestibular nerve after sectioning the vestibular nerve medial to Scarpa's ganglion to allow ...

These themes transcend subject areas by providing natural frameworks for unifying the curriculum. Universal themes are powerful catalysts for lifelong learning because they address what is at the core of humanity...
